It was me: Sworn Trump enemy John McCain admits HE handed smear dossier to FBI
Daily Mail ^ | January 11,2017 | By DARREN BOYLE

Posted on 01/11/2017 8:40:04 AM PST by Hojczyk

Arizona Senator who disowned Trump before election admits he handed document outlining claims of Kremlin blackmail to FBI

Brief statement claims that he received it and gave it directly to FBI Director James Comey because he was 'unable to make judgment about accuracy'

But Washington reporter Carl Bernstein says former British ambassador to Moscow handed it to McCain

Ambassador has not been named - and author of report also gave to FBI agent he knew at its station in Rome months ago

Report was apparently paid for first BY Republican enemies of Trump then by Democrats

Sworn Donald Trump enemy John McCain admitted Wednesday that he passed the dossier of claims of a Russian blackmail plot against the president-elect.

The Arizona senator issued a public statement amid mounting questions of his exact role in the affair - and how a document riddled with errors and unverifiable claims came to be published.

'Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public,' he said.

'Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the Director of the FBI.

'That has been the extent of my contact with the FBI or any other government agency regarding this issue.'

But the 2008 Republican loser, who disowned his party's candidate weeks before the election, may have been far more intimately involved than that.

The chain of how the document reached the FBI is not officially known.

However Carl Bernstein, the Watergate reporter who contributed to the first story about its existence, published by CNN on Tuesday afternoon, suggested that McCain was handed it by a former British ambassador to Moscow.

I don’t believe Bernstein. Apparently this trash has been handed out to everyone from John Podoretz at the New York Post to my local coupon insert at Stop & Shop. Trump doing an excellent push-back at his presser.

McConnell needs to immediately remove McCain from all leadership positions in the Senate. Any “Republican” undermining the party or president should be removed from any leadership roles. If not, then McConnell himself should resign or be replaced.

Every single person on this site should pat themselves on the back.

We all can bet that “someone” has been, and continues, to monitor this site.

Now “son of” Cain can expect another beat down like he got in the “Hilton” only it will be worse.

I am tired of the words Nazi, racist, and traitor. There are actual real Nazis, racists, and traitors. I disagree with McCain often but he is not a traitor.

Yeah, but where’d you get it, McCain? Did Evan McMullin when he was advisor to the House secure it when he learned DJT was going to run in ‘16, to Romney’s chagrin, who wanted Walker or Ryan? Is there a reason the footnotes refer to 2012 data? Why are you covering for McMullin? Cuz you guys can’t stop posing for pix with ISIS?

What a dirty bastard. I’m not that surprised. Trumps statements last spring about McCain not being a hero because he got caught have fueled John’s rage to this day. There’s the ‘hero-rage’ and plain old jealousy that Donald won the prize, when McCain did not. So very dirty.
I think even Meghan, his talkative daughter may not be proud of what her father did to his own party.

I am betting McCain thought he would be the hero from all of this.

Seriously. He thought he was the white knight in shining armor coming to save the USA from President Trump and would be celebrated by dems and Conservatives alike.

He needs to just retire already.

If all that happened was that someone gave him the documents and he gave them to the FBI, then that’s exactly what he should have done.

If he had any deeper involvement than that...

He chose.....poorly.

By that, his expiration date has come to pass. Sometimes, a politician simply becomes too stale, too comfortable and too full of himself to be an effective advocate for the People.

Doug, how would you explain his behavior regarding POW-MIAs? Or his statement in a foreign land about an act of war last week? Finally, his standing with ISIS terrorists, sworn enemies of our country? I, too, will not use labels incorrectly in order to vent my spleen. All I could do is not vote for him.

I think the real Republicans in AZ need to get somebody warmed up in the bull-pen to take McCain out in the primaries. He's got a lot of good stuff floating about the internet, should be able to piece something together that will sink him.

John McCain - oaf extraordinary.

No grace, no compromise, no remorse. And not a great deal of intellectual attainment.

Traitor is much too kind a word to describe this despicable bully.

I think that in a couple of weeks AG Jeff Sessions should look into the providing of false information to the FBI by Senator McStain. No one is above the law - and make no mistake, if any of us “proles” dared to do what McStain did, we would end up in jail.
